sorry, I don't have a link to a photo but maybe somebody else can help here.
The rollup looks like:

It's 2 meters x 42 centimeters ... afaik this are round about 7 x 1.5 ft

white with a big light blue elephant at the corner as background

At the middle there is the big blue elephant as PostgreSQL logo plus the 
logo text: PostgreSQL

Then there is the text: "the free and open source object relational 
database management system"
and the text: "an elephant never forgets"

Also there is the link: on it.

And because usually we use it in Germany and lots of Germans are not 
able to speak/understand English we put the links to the German 
presentations on it.

The rollup wasn't sponsored it was paid from the donations that we got 
for selling T-Shirts and mugs, so there is no hint to a sponsor on the 

I wanted to make it bilingual English/German but the designer told me, 
that would be too much text. So I decided to make it English only 
because usually we have German flyers and our visitors at the booth 
usually recognise the blue elephant and know that this is the PostgreSQL 
booth when they see the elephant.

When we want a rollup for the whole European group we should put links 
on it where to find the European language based groups, but it really 
will get too much text to put all links on it. So its better to put the link on it and the .eu link where you can find the links 
to the language based groups. When the .eu presentation is finished I am 
pretty sure that you will find there the links to every European 
language based group.

The rollup just should show: "here is PostgreSQL" ... or better: "You 
can find the PostgreSQL guys here"
